Good morning, everyone. I am functioning on five hours of sleep because my medication still isn’t doing its job yet. Somehow my body clock has been changed to where I’m sleeping during the day and up all night. I am thinking it is because of all the drama and kids crying, screaming, and attitudes to where I am sleeping so that I don’t have to hear it and then up all night when it is completely peaceful and quiet.
Anyway, today is going good so far except now I am being asked to be the voice of children and having to move out of this house and next door to protect my husband from any false accusations. It is trying and frustrating because it will be that we have had to move five times in six months because of other peoples drama.
I am keeping positive about things but my husband is frustrated and it kills me to see him have to go through this again. There are other people living in this house who have five children that are loud and disrespectful and my sister-in-law feels that she bit off more than she can chew by having them live here because they are trying to be cheap about the bills and trying to stick her with most of the bills and she is on a very fixed income with hardly any money left over and they will be getting over a grand every month but only want to pay two hundred towards the rent and one hundred towards the power bill.
I hate seeing her go through this as well because these people are not looking out for her and she has health conditions that require someone to check in on her and they stay in their room most of the time sleeping. They hardly help clean the house and she is left doing everything and getting fed up with it. They really need to find a place of their own now that they can afford it. She is at a loss of what to do.
So, I will leave this for now because I don’t want my anger to build and then blow up at these people because they couldn’t handle it. To everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else have a pleasant Sunday. Take care.
Well, today we made it to the doctor and my husband got his meds filled and I got a new medication that is to help me with my OCD and sleep. I am hopeful that it will help me because being around the people I am frustrates me because they live differently or do things differently than what I am used to. So, we will see how this next month goes and if it will help.
Other than that, my old roommate paid us a visit and didn’t even say two words to me but is supposed to be getting the rest of her stuff out of here on Friday, but it doesn’t matter because we are moving anyway which I am looking forward to. It will be nice to be away from here and getting a fresh start. Being out in the middle of nowhere might do some good for me mentally as well.
I am feeling a little better today but I am taking a few days off mentally from everything. I told my husband he gets to delegate things and take over for me while I rest my mind. I have too many things to get taken care of for me and I need to focus on that. I hope my husband can handle everything and not just sit back and let everything go.
Well, it is that time for me to get on to other things and want to wish everyone “Happy Birthday” that has a birthday today and to everyone else have a blessed day.
First, I want to wish every father out there a very “Happy Father’s Day” and that you deserve to have a day that recognizes you for all your hard work, effort, and support that you have given to your children. It takes a real man to be there to support his children and if you are raising someone else’s children, then I applaud you even more. My husband and I were not blessed with any children except for our four-legged ones, but we do admire and respect those who have walked in those shoes of fatherhood. I also want to say “thank you” for being a part of your children’s lives and supporting their mother through it as well.
Now, on to me. I am having a good day so far except for a little issue with my right leg. I just tried walking to the store with my husband and using my cane when my right leg began going weak. Then, on the way back it was like a charlie horse in my calf but it was taking my right leg out from under me and my husband had to catch me before I hit the ground. He had to support me the rest of the way home. Thank God it was only a few blocks away.
I am feeling good about everything and look forward to chatting with everyone every day. You, my readers, make it worth getting up for every day. I feel alive today more than any other and for an unknown reason. I have decided and discussed with my husband that I will do my book writing at night. He is usually asleep around midnight and even with my meds I am still up until three or four o’clock in the morning, so I might as well use that quiet time for writing.
I am going to end this posting here so that I can get everything together for my writing tonight. I still have a few things to do before I begin writing. I wish everyone who has a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else a truly relaxing a blessed evening.
P.S “Happy Father’s Day!!”
This morning I was finally able to get up on my schedule. It has been really hard to stay on my schedule lately with trying to get my first book published and then SSI playing around with our checks on top of it. They guys have been working on the house and we are on the final lap before we can move in. I have finally gotten all my medical cards and actually have a back doctor visit on Monday to find out what is going on with my spine. Anyway, I’m on schedule today and hopefully will be getting with the graphic designer for my book but everything seems to be good today so far. The new year has started off pretty good, Clifford and I are happily married still after three years we are still on honeymoon. 🙂 I have also been working on my second book as well and it should be ready for publishing soon. I have so many books to write it isn’t funny. I already have notes for each of the next twenty books. A mixture of every genre. I hope everyone has been enjoying the new year and please feel free to read my short stories and give me some feedback on them. Well, have a blessed day everyone, it is time to start writing.
Today was a good day for me and my husband because we are now moving forward with the renovations to the house we are going to move into. Thursday we will be going and laying new floors in the kitchen and bathroom, insulating pipes under the house, and the new wiring is going in as well. We still have a way to go but we are hopeful that we will be moving in the first week of January. It has been somewhat fun in this two room tent but it is almost time to go back indoors to the warmth of a heater. 🙂
All of our bills have been caught up and current and I feel no stress today, but still a little sick. I have been drinking orange juice and sprite plus plenty of pepto to stop up the back end and calm down my stomach. I will be setting up doctor appointments tomorrow and our car is getting an overhaul thanks to my mechanic husband. I am sitting here at my faithful computer and I already have a two-week list of titles for short stories, I just have to sit and write them. Plenty of ideas in my head and a writing pad next to me to jot down any more ideas that pop into my mind. Thank you to everyone who responded or responds to my community questions they are very helpful. I am happy, focused, and ready to move forward with getting my first nonfiction book published this January. It is in its final editing and rewrite, and I have a cover designer who is working on a book cover for me and I do want to say thank you to everyone who has not given up on me because that makes me a better person also. I wish everyone a great night and I will write more tomorrow. Good night.
